Well, I didn't really stumble on it.  I was at the 1987 meeting
when we decided to define Haskell.

But I stumbled on functional programming in the first place.
I had to learn it because it was part of a course in denotational
semantics.  The language was SASL.  And then I read David Turners
paper on combinators, and I was hooked.
